On June 14th, 2018, a new chapter was started when Character Development was recorded and published as the first Life of an Architect podcast episode. Recorded bi-weekly, hosts Bob Borson and Landon Williams discuss all things architecture with a little bit of life thrown in for balance.
Meet the Hosts
Dallas architect Bob Borson, FAIA, is widely recognized as the blogger behind Life of an Architect—one of the world’s most popular architectural blogs. As an emerging voice within the architectural community, he has bridged the gap and engaged multiple generations of architects and architectural enthusiasts by sharing his personal experiences, professional practice tips, and anecdotes on what it’s like to work with and be an architect.
Bob was recognized by the Dallas AIA as “Young Architect of the Year” in 2009, received the Award for Excellence in the Promotion of Architecture through the Media from the Texas Society of Architects in 2015, and was elevated into the American Institute of Architects College of Fellows in 2017.
Today, he is a partner at Malone Maxwell Borson Architects – a Dallas-based architectural firm with 11 employees, whose work focuses on single-family residential, light commercial, retail, and interior architecture projects located around the country.

Landon Williams, AIA is a project architect with Malone Maxwell Borson Architects. He was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and graduated Summa Cum Laude from Virginia Tech in 2016. Drawing from his experience in Virginia Tech’s design/buildLAB program, he takes pride in the art of building and the expression of craft in architecture as well as the essential connection to the natural environment. When not in the office or tucked away reading a book, he enjoys exploring the outdoors and the Texas landscape.
